Experiencing the Sacred
There is nothing that rocks my boat more than heart-felt conversation. Those conversations where we risk being vulnerable and in return we each open wider. Our spiritual journeys were never intended to be solo missions. We were built for community. ~ Ricky
Are you growing deeper spiritually? Have you become more open and aware? Do you have people in your life that just don’t get you and question your path? Were you raised in the Catholic or Protestant church and still long to be connected to your roots but can’t “do” legalism or live in the dualistic mindset? Have you been drawn to the quiet beauty of the Eastern Traditions because you long for transformation of the heart, mind and soul, yet you miss “home”?
What would it be like to discover that the ancient Christian tradition also holds the contemplative path that your soul is longing for; that Jesus, himself, was inclusive, non-dualistic, and “silence” his prayer?
This book club will explore the writings of the Mystics, both past and modern-day.

Discover the Power within You
by Eric Butterworth
(Endorsed by Richard Rohr.)
In this 40th anniversary edition of Eric Butterworth's inspiring tour de force, the author shares the greatest discovery of all time: the ability to see the divine within us all. Jesus saw this divine dimension in every human being, and Butterworth reveals this hidden and untapped resource to be a source of limitless abundance. Exploring this "depth potential," Butterworth outlines ways in which we can release the power locked within us for better health, greater confidence, increased success, and inspired openness to let our "light shine" forth for others.
As you read you are encouraged to notice your inner-stirrings and journal what comes up. When we gather we will open our time with 5-10 minutes of silence to prepare our hearts for a deeper awareness. From there we will share from our heart, rather than just discuss what we “think” about the book. Whatever is shared within our circle will stay there. We will respectfully listen without trying to “fix” each other. The purpose is to hold a sacred space where we learn together the invitation that awaits our souls.
